If love isn’t in the air for singles desperate for their soul mate, it might be in the stars.
In “Cosmic Love,” a new unique dating show from Amazon Studios, four sexy contestants from across the United States embark on a star-crossed journey to find their perfect match, guided by their hearts — and their astrological birth charts.
“They say love doesn’t come with instructions, but actually your birth chart is a little manual for yourself,” Ophira and Tali Edut, also known as the AstroTwins, explained to The Post. The show’s astrologers and bestselling authors — who have worked with a number of A-listers, including Beyoncé, Emma Roberts, Alicia Keys, Karlie Kloss and Sting — advise the singles throughout the season through the mysterious and mystical Astro Chamber.
“We match people based on their sun, moon, mercury, their astrological chart,” the AstroTwins say. “During the season, they learn about themselves and unravel the mystery of themselves and their charts as… [exploring] their physical attraction to other people. So there are two things at play. There are their hearts and their cards. It’s really fascinating and fun to watch them discover these things within themselves.”
Each of the show’s four leads represents one of the four elements of astrology: air, fire, water, and earth. There’s Maria Rodriguez (Capricorn, earth element), a feisty 28-year-old Latina from New York City who has struggled to find time to find love while running several successful businesses, including her own brand, M Beauty Party. Model and fitness competitor Phoebe Davis (Leo, fire element) hails from Spokane, Washington, and the 28-year-old is described as “the consummate cosmic lioness whose roar has scared off more than a few players.”
The boys represent Connor Shennan (Gemini, Air Element), a 27-year-old forest firefighter from Phoenix, Arizona, who “must weigh every option before making a decision,” and Noel Allen (Pisces, Water Element), a 31-year-old personal trainer and New Jersey native who loves cooking, anime and “will not water down his desire for both freedom and security.”
During the season, the four protagonists will mingle with 16 contestants in the hope of finding true love and, if they are lucky before the end of the series, they will have to solve a very cosmic dilemma: will they marry their match, exclusively based on their astrology – or will they end their journey alone?

Filmed in an exotic and mysterious location, the romantic adventure of the four elements is a must-see according to Rodriguez.
“This is something you’ve never seen before,” she told The Post. “You get to see different cultures, different ages, different companies and different ideas [and] different personalities. And I think that’s what it takes in reality TV right now. You need something young, you need something fun, something different. It’s unique. So why not watch?”
And while the concept of the dating series may be unorthodox, Rodriguez is confident that she will find her match with astrology as her guide only.
“It’s about signs,” she said emphatically. “Astrology is one way or another in everyone’s life. Whether you believe in numbers, horoscopes, crystals, the universe, manifestations or the zodiac signs, you believe in astrology.”
“Cosmic Love” will premiere all 10 episodes on Prime Video on Friday, August 12.
Produced by Amazon Studios and Hudsun Media, the series is available in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
